Johnny Depp shares video message with fans as Amber Heard appeal deadline looms
Johnny Depp emerged victorious in his defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard following
three days of deliberations by the jury, which also handed Heard a partial win in her countersuit.
Depp sued Heard for $50m for implying he abused her
Although she didn’t name him, he claims her allegations impacted his ability to work. She pursued a $100m counterclaim.
The jury determined Heard defamed Depp on all three counts
and awarded him $10m in compensatory damages and $5m in punitive damages.
Heard was awarded $2m compensatory damages.
The “humbled” actor thanked the jury for giving him his life back.
He is currently playing gigs on a UK tour with Jeff Beck, where the actor told fans he was “still in shock”.
